Sept 9 (Reuters) – McDonald’s Corp said all eggs it uses in its 16,000 restaurants in the United States and Canada will come from chickens that are not confined to cages within 10 years.
The decision to source “cage-free” eggs follows the company’s announcement in March that it would stop using chicken raised with certain kinds of antibiotics at its U.S. restaurants over two years.
McDonald’s buys about 2 billion eggs annually for its U.S restaurants and 120 million for Canada to serve breakfast items such as Egg McMuffin and Egg White Delight.
McDonald’s USA has been buying more than 13 million cage-free eggs annually since 2011.
